Samsung Galaxy Note 7R hitting South Korea in May

Posted May 16, 2017

Breaking news from China suggests that Samsung has decided on the screen size for the Galaxy Note 8, with the forthcoming phablet benefiting from a 6.3-inch panel.

The 12-megapixel rear camera setup of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus has ranked below that of the Google Pixel and Pixel XL in a series of tests performed by imaging company DxOMark. A dual-camera has also been rumored to be present on the handset and this is not the first time that this information has come forth.

That may be a major stumbling block for the company considering the issues Samsung had with the original Galaxy Note 7.

The Samsung Galaxy S8 shines in the video recording segment where it comes out at the top with a sub-score of 88 points. The device in question, allegedly the Galaxy J7 Max, is expected to be priced somewhere around Rs 20,000 or less. What's more, the Galaxy S8 Pirates of the Caribbean edition will ship out in a pirate box, alongside a gold ring and other movie-themed accessories.

The slides also reveal support for Samsung Pay Mini. The Bluetooth certification body may have approved the Galaxy Note 7R, but that doesn't necessarily mean the phone will be available for purchase soon.

Samsung has confirmed it will soon release refurbished versions of the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 - the phablet that caught fire in several cases previous year - but certification for the new phone may prove a problem for Samsung. Interestingly, another rumor said that the Galaxy Note 8 will have an edge-to-edge foldable display. The four large cores in this unit run at 2.45 GHz, with the four smaller cores delivering 1.9 GHz of processing power for background tasks. It will come with a sizable 4GB RAM along with at least 32GB of internal storage.
